Parrot MiniKit Chic - GIVEAWAY!!!

This giveaway is sponsored by Parrot and one lucky winner will receive their MiniKit Chic Hands Free Blue Tooth set!
Parrot says:
"For those of us who don’t have an in-vehicle voice-activated phone system, the MiniKit Chic is the alternative to help moms stay connected and safe - without the clunky Bluetooth headsets or uncomfortable ear piece. With after-school activities about to begin and the day-to-day shuttling that puts mom behind the wheel throughout the day, Parrot’s MiniKit Chic is the perfect solution that combines connectivity, quality, style and of course safety.

Parrot’s MiniKit Chic is a portable Bluetooth hands free kit. With a stylish and sleek design, the MiniKit easily attaches to the sun visor and fits in a purse for complete portability. Its highly intuitive interface automatically connects to your Bluetooth phone when nearby and automatically synchronizes to your phonebook. With talk-to-dial name recognition, the MiniKit Chic recognizes and dials the number of the contact you speak, without any prior training. The MiniKit Chic retails for $99.99."

Parrot was kind enough to send me a MiniKit Chic to try out. And so far I've been very pleased!

Pros -
  • Allows me too keep my hands free for driving (or mitigating fights).
  • Is cute and stylish.
  • Small enough to stash in the glove box or center console when I'm not in the vehicle.
  • Very easy to link up to telephone and works immediately.
  • Excellent sound quality.
Cons -
  • Setting up voice recognition is a little bit confusing.
  • It's very girly, so your husband won't want it in his car (but, maybe that's a good thing).
Overall -
  • I like this product and will continue to use it!
_______________________________________________________________
NOW... Let's get to the fun part where one lucky reader will win a MiniKit Chic Hands Free Blue Tooth set! (To make sure your phone is compatible with the device, please check here).

  1. I am interested in this product because I do not like talking on my phone while driving, especially with my 5 month old munchkin in my car. Yet, driving is the perfect time to catch up with people, so it would be great!

    Thanks for the opportunity. My email address is jen_ross@earthlink.net.

  8. I'd love to win this! I have an over-the-ear headset and when I do manage to keep it over my ear, it hurts, so I end up taking it off. It is so dangerous, and in some places illegal, to talk on a hand-held phone while driving. Clipping this to the visor is perfect! Thanks for the very useful giveaway!

  18. I just had a baby and I am super distracted already with her in the car. When my son was a baby it was 16 years ago and then his carseat could be right next to me so I could see him and it drives me nuts she is in the back. I am so preoccupied trying to keep an eye on her I have stopped answering my phone, this would let me talk again and stop my hubby from worring because he can't get ahold of me. I know that has been driving him nuts

  109. My oldest daughter lives on her cell phone and is always on the go in her car, since I live 1200 miles away I have to always call her cell. So I would feel better knowing she is hands free talking and safe so this would make a great gift for her.

  126. Oh that's easy to answer. My daughter calls me on her cell phone (while driving...shame on her!) and it makes me extremely nervous. I would present this to her gift wrapped! I worry so much that her attention will be on the conversation and not on the road, so this would be a great prize to win so that I could alleviate my fears about her cell phone use!

    Second one this year I've lost of hers!

    Hopefully, she'll finally forgive me if I won her this great-looking Parrot Bluetooth kit!

    Thanks for the great giveaway offering!
